Something so neat!!

Hey everybody! I know that we totally fell off the face of the earth when Al came home - and I want to apologize for that. When you are National Guard and your life has been on hold for soooo long - all you want is for things to go back to 'normal' as much as possible when your soldier comes home. Al and I have been immersed in 'normal' - working, kids, church, etc. - since last January. We moved back to Jackson, MS and in May we will have been here for a year - time sure does fly fast when nobody is deployed - lol!!

Anyway, I got a super neat surprise in my email inbox yesterday when Mr. Paul Nichols emailed me and asked if he could include a caricature that he had drawn of Al and me on his website. I absolutely loved his drawing and I of course told him "YES"! I just wanted to let all of you know about his site also - because it would be a wonderful way to remember your soldier's homecoming - or any other special events that you might have.

Here's his drawing of us:

And here's his AWESOME website!

First of all I want to thank you for your military service!!! You are a great American!!!

I am a new soldier in the Army National Guard (Airborne 11 Bravo Hoo Ahh!!!) and am gearing up for my first deployment to Iraq at the end of this summer with the Washington National Guard. I have recently had a book published called “Homeless Across America.” It is my story of a trip I took last summer before going to boot camp at Fort Benning Georgia. I had actually lost my house as a result of a nasty divorce and I decided that with the time I had before leaving for my training I would drive a loop around the country and see what it was I, and you were fighting for. I can attest that after finishing my journey I was even more confident that I had made the right choice to join your ranks and as Toby says beside my brothers and my sisters proudly make a stand!!! If you feel so inclined please check out my blog at Again, thank you for your service and thank you for going before me. May God bless you and God Bless America!!!!!
